Meeting with IVP Carroll, 457, 420 & CL&P Management

Yesterday we met with CL&P management (apparently under the direction of Tom May) to discuss getting the contractors off Company property.  Present were Local 457, Local 420, IVP Frank Carroll and three members of his staff.  Like myself, IVP Carroll spoke to Tom May and everyone seems to acknowledge it’s in everyone’s best interest to have our workforce do the work.  Nothing came out of the day’s meeting; a lot of discussion, but no resolve. We gave them some things to consider so we’ll meet again in a couple of weeks and hopefully this all can be resolved.  And, no, there were no deals being made.
